8:05 pm
kron 4's annie andersen went to colma to gauge how shoppers are feeling. a shopper at the colma nordstrom rack got an unexpected surprise wednesday night. according to colma police she was punched in the face after asking a mother to quiet a loud child. natalie bree hejak richardson was in the checkout line when a child around 5 started screaming. hejak richardson and the mother of the child got into an argument when hejak richardson asked the mother to quiet the child. after that things got violent. surveillance video shows a woman following hejak richardson to her car and punching her. knocking hejak richardson to the ground. before quickly walking away. "now, days after the incident, nordstrom rack shoppers are still talking about the punch, and who was responsible for it." "i don't think it was right, but, i mean she could have handled it in a different way, but some people just have tempers. i guess she felt like she told her kid to shut up, but i just kind of think the person should hav ejust kind of like, kept it to herself.
8:06 pm
but other shoppers felt differently. "when did we get into the business of not raising our children and thinking that just because you got kids you're not supposed to have any type of decorum. when did we get in that business? you have a child, your job is to raise your child so they're functional in society, not to let them do what ever they want to. and if you're bothering somebody, tell your kid to shut the hell up." but there isn't a question of who is at fault for colma police. they are looking over the surveillance video trying to identify the woman who punched hejak richardson. so far they haven't been able to. but they are hoping somebody will come forward to put a name to the face. or in this case a name to the punch. in colma annie andersen kron 4 news. crews temporarily deactivated san francisco's outdoor emergency sirens. after they accidentally went off late last night and early this morning. officials are now testing the sirens. to see if they can figure out why they went off. alarms could be heard in the bernal heights. noe valley. and hunter point neighborhoods. just to name a few. officials say the alarms may go off again during the testing.

"the fall of the wall was the result of the movement by the people of east berlin." "it was not the work by politicians, it was the work by the citizens of the city." a one point six mile long portion of the wall - known as the east side gallery - is still standing and accessible to viewers. after commemorating the wall with the "border of light" beginning at the historic brandenburg gate, celebrants heard the "ode to joy," from the fourth movement of beethoven's ninth symphony. the work has become the theme of east/west unification. i'm mary moloney reporting.

problem on the bridge: the birds! a protected species that will not budge. and it seems they can't be coaxed to leave, either. as kron 4's charles clifford explains.the delay is costing cal-trans.millions. this is video from our helicopter partnership with abc 7 news. for the past few years, caltrans has spent millions trying to lure hundreds of birds.. including cormorants like this one... away from the old bay bridge and onto the new eastern span. so far, the birds haven't budged and that's causing problems. this has led to delays in the demolition of the old span john goodwin is a spokesman for the metropolitan transportation commission, which is overseeing the demolition of the old span. he says that the delay is putting caltrans at risk of going over budget. only about 90 million of the original 900 million dollar contingency fund for the entire eastern span project remains. currently there's about a 90 percent probability that would be exhausted. that's not a trend that is moving in the
8:48 pm
right direction. the demolition of the old bridge is scheduled to be completed in three phases. caltrans was going to start accepting bids for the second phase this month but because the birds won't leave, they now have delay the bidding process until at least february. caltrans engineers will use that extra time to hopefully find a solution to the problem, which could include putting nets on the bridge or installing some sort of bird deterrent. goodwin says they want to move forward with demolition as quickly as possible to keep the project track. the take home message here is more time, more money. it's simple as that. take a look at this! the seattle seahawks mascot had a little trouble today navigating through centurylink field. the hawk, known as "taima" got confused and ended up flying into the stands and landing right on the head of a fan. that didn't sit too well with the fan at first, but eventually the hawk calmed down, and was even seen being petted by the man she landed on. uber is looking to raise
